Min Con: A Con Man?

For the past year, 7 On Your Side’s been on the look out for a confounding contractor from Queens. According to a handful of his customers, he’s taken hundreds of thousands of dollars, yet done little or no work. He’s known by a number of aliases; Wayne Drinkwine, or Wayne Thomas, or now, W.T. Duke Benevino (Italian for "good wine"). But any way you say or spell it, his customers all say he’s broken promises, and left them penniless and, sometimes, homeless. Now, he’s been ordered to pay back big bucks in restitution by New York’s Department of Consumer Affairs. But finally after a year-long search Nina Pineda comes face to face with the elusive contractor, tonight at 5pm.
